If you can see the mesh of any net with your naked eye, the midges will probably be able to get through it. You would need very good eyesight to see our mesh, it is an ultrafine mesh specially chosen for Scottish midges, with approximately 2,500 holes per square inch.

In high midgie season with clouds of midges, extra protection is needed and you're best wearing a midge head net. We tried many midge nets, (and were pleased to have them!), but we found many insect nets were uncomfortable, had poor visibility, were mosquito nets with mesh too coarse to stop midges, or allowed midges to crawl up under the puckered elastic at the bottom of the midge hood. Some nets were so big they folded over the eyes and obscured vision. After research and much head scratching (not just from the midgie!), we designed and made our own here in Scotland.

Our midgie head net, also known as a midge hood, has a showerproof breathable microfibre top, and very fine soft mesh material for excellent visibility and comfort. It is shaped in loosely at the neck with elastic, and best of all is our innovative snug-fit collarette, which flexibly drapes itself over or under T-shirt, polo shirt or jacket collar. It is also completely suitable as a mosquito net. Note: our net fits over the head and under, but not over, a hat.

The high Quality lightweight midge net packs in a small resealable grip-seal bag. It is safe to use with Care Plus Natural which we now distribute instead of Stop Bite, our natural midge repellent (currently unavailable), which we soak tested the head net with.

 Midgie Head Net for
 maximum protection,
 comfort and visibility. After requests from bowlers who dress in whites, we found a suitable clear white netting material. We think black has the best visibility overall, a bit like wearing sunglasses. White has better visibility in the shade, but when light catches it you get a shimmer, or haze as in picture; same for pink, stone, blue and green.

If you already have itchy midgie or other insect bites, try our natural herbal Itch Ease. Use Sting Ease to soothe wasp and bee stings, and refreshing Toots Ease foot spray with rosemary, for hot tired feet.

 midge Often you'll be putting the head net on with clouds of midges about, so the best idea is to brush the midges off your head and neck first - and we find it's effective to whirl the midgie net around your head like a maniac to get rid of the midges around you then put the net on quickly (but carefully)! The seam should be at the back of the head, not the front. The head net is a bit tailored, and people with large heads may find it a bit tight or perhaps claustrophobic at first. The material is really comfortable, so please persevere - you should get used to it. We found that with midge nets made with large amounts of netting, you could get 2 or 3 or even more folds in front of the eyes, and not be able to see a thing. Also if a net is too loose and baggy it can get tangled in low-lying branches. Our head net fits over glasses, but not over a hat - it fits easily under hats.

When taking the midge net off, don't pull from the top as it's a delicate fabric, ease it off carefully from the loosely elasticated neck. In an emergency it can be pulled off quickly. The net can be stored wet without spoiling but is better stored dry. Because of the extremely fine mesh material, our head net keeps light rain off the face, and the microfibre top is showerproof. You can safely spray our Lemon Eucalyptus midge repellent (Stop Bite is unavailable - EU regulations) on your head and neck before putting on the head net.  midge The migdy net was 4 week soak tested in Stop Bite without any damaged, and we've have had no problem with Care Plus Natural repellent. We designed it and think it's the best midge head net on the market. For sitting around outdoors we have citronella, lavender and bog myrtle candles. Advice? Try the midgieman.
